Review

"DRUIDS is a very fine fantasy novel that cries out for a sequel." - Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula winner

"Josh Langston and Barbara Galler-Smith have written a magnificent epic - richly detailed, exciting, dramatic, and compelling. This is the debut of a major writing team; don't miss it." - Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of "Hominids"

"...epic tale of love, loss and betrayal."
- Bitten by Books

"This is such a terrific book! It combines historical fiction with fantasy to deliver a
spellbinding story of love, war, revenge, and magic. I couldn't put it down!" - Shelfari

Format: Paperback
This book continues the story begun in "Druids" and rises to the high standard that volume set for the series. Once again, natural dialogue carries the story along at a brisk pace. The characters introduced in "Druids" continue to develop through real hardships and the authors continue to subject the most likable characters to cruel fates. The highly believable depiction of the varied cultures encountered by the characters brings the ancient world alive and the bucolic life of tribes-people contrasts well with the sophistication of the Romans and Greeks the characters meet and, occasionally, defeat. There is even a cameo appearance of a well-known Roman emperor-to-be. My only criticism is that I have to wait for the next book to see the resolution of the perilous situations in which the authors have left the characters.

As someone who loved Druids, I had to read the sequel and Captives certainly delivered. This book delivers history, adventure, dramatic storylines, and a healthy dose of stubborn heros and villians who each push for their way at all costs. Captives sends the different characters in all directions and predicaments, and through constant twists and turns in their story lines, it eventually draws them all back in for a final showdown in the 3rd installment I can't wait for....I'd recommend this to anyone who likes fascinating storytelling.

Format: Paperback
The second book on the life of Druid Mallec and friends continues to entertain with thrilling action. Just when Mallec appears to have firm control of his domain, the luck of the villages he oversees goes from bad to worse. His trusting nature does not allow him to "see" the plots of his enemies and consequently, he finds himself subject to an evil slavemaster. All is not lost however as his travels in servitude eventually allow him to meet the woman of his long enduring vision.

After many trials, he manages to escape with the woman of his dreams and finally return to his domain. Life looks up for the couple if only they can learn to live with a strong, confident partner. Just when matters appear to return to a happy and stable mode, Mallec receives a troubling vision regarding future war and eminent danger to the people under his care. The authors provide much latitude for preparations to avoid future troubles and many more plots and intrigues. I look forward to at least one more volume to advance the story of these characters I have come to enjoy and admire.

A truely amazing tale of life in Roman times of slaves and masters, healers and warriors. Fighting enemies in their own ranks, Druid Mallek and Driad Rhonwen find themselves on a collision course through trials and tribulations befitting a great epic. As the second book in the series, Captives is a great complement to "Druids" where our heroine was left to fend for herself as a slave headed for Rome and an uncertain future. I loved it and I eagerly await "Warriors", the final book in the series.

Captives is the next thrilling installment in the Druids saga. An adventure from start to finish, I found myself worrying about the characters when I wasn't reading the book and sneaking off to read another chapter. The drama and pace of this book grabbed me for the very beginning and never let go!

Format: Paperback
"Captives" is the continuing story in the Druids saga of druid Mallec and healer Rhonwen, whom Mallec sees in his visions but has yet to meet. The book focuses on the excruciating pathways each must take to obtain freedom and peace. Using skillfully descriptive passages, the authors build suspense in each chapter as the story alternates between the two characters, who find themselves victims of traitorous clansmen, sadistic slavers, death threats and more. Detailed descriptions of the ancient ceremonies which Mallec performs bring the centuries-old Celtic culture to life as fiction blends with history to tell the tale. I'm eager for the final book, to see how the authors resolve the plot lines and how they draw everything to a satisfying conclusion. This book would be a great addition to a summer reading list but I'd suggest reading "Druids" first.

Format: Paperback
This is the second in the trilogy. The characters from the first installment continue their own perspective narrations of their lives. All though these are historical fantasy books I would not be so quick as some are to dismiss them as childish. The characters deal with real problems that though put into a fantastical setting are bound to raise compassion within the reader. The antagonists continue to sink to worse lows, when you think they have done the most unforgivable transgressions they find new ones to shock you. I have to admit when their reckoning comes about I cheered and did a in the air fist pump. The villains within this trilogy is my reason for reading these books.It seems that it is fashionable now to have villains that are likable or just misunderstood. It was refreshing to have villains that when thwarted you felt a great sense of relief for the protagonists. You do not have to have any historical knowledge of druids to enjoy this trilogy, the story its self is what makes these books so enjoyable. Highly recommended to all.
